KIND WORDS

 

"Aurelia D’Amore is a one-of-a-kind photographer who was recommended to my husband and me by a friend. When she found out my bridesmaids and I were wearing boots, she excitedly asked, “can I wear my boots too!?” Of course the answer was “yes”, but boy did she need them! We nicknamed her “the billy goat” as she hopped from boulder to boulder, hid among brush, and even climbed tree climbs- all in pursuit of the best shot. At one point, a bunch of us even saw her cleaning up spilled wine on the dance floor! She was incredibly easy to talk to over the phone, and our first in-person meeting couldn’t have gone better. We met at a diner in Los Angeles and she came fully prepared with samples of wedding albums filled with photos she had taken. We ordered breakfast for dinner and chatted for well over an hour. When she first saw the ceremony site, she gave invaluable advice as to where we should place ourselves and our Bridal Party so as to be in the most flattering light, and as we roamed the rest of the property, she took notes on which shots she wanted to make sure she got. I followed her amazing Facebook posts up until the day of our Wedding, which reassured me she was the right choice. She is a very busy photographer, but when you are with her she is so focused on getting your needs met; she is so personable and caring. I felt so comfortable around her too. I tell people- “I want her to be my friend!” After much debate with my now-husband about which photographer to choose (we interviewed at least four), we were relieved once we had met Aurelia. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone that I hear is getting married, having a baby, or experiencing any other momentous event. Her energy is truly infectious and her photos are works of art…" Kate & Jeff Skene ( Pritchett-Rapf & Local Authority LA )

"Aurelia was a breath of fresh air when we were planning our wedding. Aside from the beautiful pictures she captured of our wedding, she was also fantastic to work with. So many people came up to us after the wedding mentioning how great she and her team were. That says something when people love the energy of the photographer. Aurelia's the full package. You get great pictures, great personality, and a hard work who is passionate about what she does. I'd hire her again and highly recommend her for your event!"    Chef James Barry & Margaret Floyd Barry

 

"As for our photographers, Aurelia and Peter were great, truly great They made everyone, guests, family, bridal party, feel comfortable and relaxed. They did an amazing job of capturing all the memorable moments of the day, the ones we’ll look back on for years and treasure. I love the candid shots of our guests, and the way they recorded the love, energy, sparkle and humor of our wedding. Candid wedding photographs are my favorites, because they’re authentic and spontaneous.  Our joy and excitement literally emanate from all the pictures taken that day.  But one shot in particular really stands out --- the way the memory itself will always stand out --- the moment Shmug and I made our “grand entrance” as Mr. and Mrs. Meadow!" Lucy Meadow

"Aurelia D'Amore is an exceptional wedding photographer and I would highly recommend her to any bride. She not only has a beautiful personality but is a very skilled photographer that has a unique point of view. Her professionalism and organization were superior. Aurelia listened to my priorities and exceeded my expectations even when I had a limited budget. Thanks to her I have loads of stunning images to cherish."- Jacqueline Straughan

 

"We had the pleasure of working Aurelia, who happens to be the sweetest person you'll ever meet. She's not only talented, but calming and hard working. We are so happy that she captured our special day with such beautiful images. Her pictures will speak for themselves. Aurelia takes her time to find out your likes and dislikes. She got to know what we wanted in our photos and what we wanted to capture. We feel so fortunate to have Aurelia as our wedding photographer. She is flexible, prompt, professional, and fun. Our beautiful images will be cherished for many years to come."  Sophia Fang & Patrick Wood

"Aurelia exceeded all expectations. She has an amazing eye for lighting, composition and drama and prolifically produces excellent photographs. Of the literally thousands of pictures she took at our wedding, a ridiculous percentage were outstanding: my wife and I struggled for hours deciding which pictures to exclude from our wedding album. Aurelia is one of the hardest working photographers I have ever seen. She had seemingly endless energy and her warm personality made us all comfortable in front of the camera. What truly speaks for itself is the quality of her photography. Everything from the set-up shots to the "decisive moment" pictures are first class. I whole-heartedly recommend Aurelia as your wedding photographer." David Klaw
 

"Aurelia,  A millions can't describe how special you made me feel with your presence and amazing generosity of time. The pictures are so beautiful and special to both Paul and I. Thank you" Georgina Penate

 

"Aurelia is not only incredibly talented, she is sweet, dedicated and responsive and made all of our guests (and the groom) feel comfortable. She is by far the best investment we made in vendors for our wedding. The pictures are works of art. Highly recommended!! I will definitely be looking her up in the future." Sarah & Ray Campisi
 

"Aurelia is very sweet. At the engagement party all the guests loved her, she did pictures of little cute details but also the general atmosphere at the party. She captured the feelings there and made fantastic pictures. We loved her so much that we hired her for our wedding on the east coast. She's very professional and pays attention to what you want and don't want. We totally recommend her!" Sophie Antona Rein
 

"What makes a good portrait is the essence of a person coming through the photograph. Aurelia D'Amore is this kind of photographer. I have seen her wedding photos of several couples ( including my own wedding) and she brings out the true relationship of the couple. Her pictures tell the story of the love you and your partner have for each other on this day and all the days to come." Donna & Oscar Apodaca
 

"Aurelia, I wanted to send out a thank you for everything you've done to capture out wedding day. Everyone commented on your energy and how you were taking pictures all night long! We were so lucky to have such a talented photographer." Jenny & Rich Ramos
 

"Aurelia was our wedding photographer.  She was amazing!  I love our photos.  They are more natural and less traditional than most wedding photos.  That was want we wanted since we were in our late 40s with 6 kids between us.  She was able to capture all our kid's personalities even though she only knew them for a short time.  She was able to calm my nerves more than any of my family or friends, which was just what I needed.  Our photos are spontaneous, creative and fun." Deborah Roper Casanova

 

"Aurelia shot our wedding. She is such a gifted photographer, as well as being fun and easy to have around at the wedding. We felt truly blessed to have her as our photographer." Merve Demircioglu Goknar
 

"If you want a photographer that is going to capture the moment, the right moment, then you want to hire Aurelia. She is extremely passionate about her work and you can tell that she absolutely loves her craft. The pictures she creates will always make you smile, shed a tear, laugh, or force you to reminisce about times come and gone. Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious and before you know it she’ll have you striking poses in obscure places in order to get the shot that once all is said and done will really be worth “a thousand words,” and so much more to the person, family, or organization that had the good sense to hire her." Jamie Oswald Frost
 

"Dear Aurelia, Thank you so very much for the gorgeous photos of Justin & Johnny. You are amazingly talented. Thanks for sharing it with us! Many Thanks, Lauren & Johnny Bench"
 

"I would not use anyone else, she is a treasure to work with, always full of ideas and always makes me look good!" Valentine Jeanne Viannay

"Aurelia is a fantastically talented photographer- she is a master of her craft and a true artist. I think her work is amazing. " Laura Bogard, The Wellbred Bakery in Asheville, NC

"Super talented photographer with beautiful body of work. She's a great team player and steps in as a leader when time calls for one, with the best problem solving skills and most positive attitude and happy personality. She's simply brilliant!" Izabela Berengut Vitanza

"Aurelia has a very adept, heartfelt, and compassionate way about her. She is great with people, especially children. I highly recommend her." David Safian: SAF Productions
